Are Looking to Create Custom Geocaching Coins?

Looking to pick up a new activity? Looking for a novel gift idea? You may want to get some custom geocoins and give geocaching a try. This modern-day treasure-hunting game is captivating people of all ages. Geocachers use a hand-held GPS-enabled device to navigate to coordinates they find online from a database or from fellow geocachers that leads them to a hidden geocache, usually a container filled with geocaching items and goodies.

Engaging in geocaching can be like discovering a whole new and secret universe. Geocaching items are hidden all over the world and anyone with the proper equipment can participate. Caches can be located in almost any place you could think of, from hiking trails to someplace under the water. You may even be surprised how many of these unique treasures you walk by every day without even knowing. If you’re hiding your own geocache, just use your imagination because the possibilities are endless!

The rules to the game are simple: if you take a geocaching item, leave something of equal or greater value in its place and record your visit in the logbook online. While a variety of “treasures” can be found in any given cache, ranging from small trinkets to CDs or books, one of the most popular gifts to leave and find is the geocoin. These coins are often categorized as “hitchhikers” because they characteristically travel from one cache to another. They are usually engraved with a tracking number, making it possible for their travels to be tracked and followed by geocachers everywhere.
